Michigan Unemployment W2's?

Has anyone received their Michigan Unemployment W2 yet? My husband got laid off at Xmas, received 2 weeks of unemployment (not getting a check until Jan) and we're still hovering over our mailbox waiting for a W2 from the state. Anyone else still waiting?

  • if you didn't receive the money until January then you won't get a 1099 until next year.

  • What's a 1099? I thought if you earned the money in 08, you'd get a W2.

  • he also may not get one if what he made in 2008 was under 600. I believe Unemployments are 1099 as others posted. Its similiar to a W2 but they didn't with hold federal/other taxes. It just states they made $$$ in that year. I believe it is over 400 or 600

  • A 1099 is the "W2" for the unemployment benefits. It tells you how much in benefits he received in 2008 or whatever tax year and what taxes are taken out, if any. No matter how much he received he will get a 1099. My hubby received $245 in unemployment benefits in January 2008 and that is the amount that was on his 1099. He, like your hubby, was laid off in December and filed for unemployment benefits but didn't actually receive the money until January 2009 so it was not included in the 1099 for tax year 2008. It is based on when the money was paid out, not the period during which he claimed unemployment.

  • I called the state, no 1099 coming this year, because we didn't receive money until 09.
